Where are Fireworks on Hilton Head

It doesn’t have to be the 4th of July for fireworks on Hilton Head Island and land is not the only viewing place.

The sky is lighting up each Tuesday before dusk from June 2nd to August 18 at Shelter Cover Harbour. The fireworks display is part of HarbourFest on Hilton Head Island.

Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort sponsors HarbourFest a summertime tradition and long time event on Hilton Head Island. Bret Martin, vice president of operations at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort says “We’re excited to once again welcome generations of visitors to Shelter Cove Harbour for shopping, dining and fun summertime entertainment.” HarbourFest begins at 6p.m. and ends at 9:45p.m. nightly. All events are free and open to the public.

The fireworks flashing above in the sky and their reflection in the water is a unique and memorable experience. If having fireworks weekly during the summer is not enough fun the experience can be even more unique. Several companies offer fireworks tours so the fireworks are seen from the water.

Outside Hilton Head, offers a special 2 hour Fireworks Dolphin boat cruise that departs early evening from Shelter Cove Marina on Tuesdays. The first part of the cruise is an informative Dolphin Eco cruise with the additional half hour spent enjoying the HarbourFest fireworks display. They also offer a kayaking fireworks paddle tour.

Live Oak “The Island’s Outdoor Adventure Company” offers private custom tours on their Hurricane Sun Deck cruising boat. If you prefer a sailing vessel to see the fireworks from, Advanced Sail Inc. can accommodate large or small groups for a fireworks sailing tour.

So when there are fireworks every week on Hilton Head Island what happens on the Fourth of July? There are more fireworks, bigger fireworks and more places to see them.
